    I can hear them very well on the record, but here, all three of them are drowned out by the music. Their mics needed to be turned up.

    Absolutely fantastic cut. I think she could've had a hit with it. One of my favorite vocal performances of Diana.

    Horrible performance. Very amateurish. The studio version is actually pretty nice, even though, like most of the rest of the album, it has a karaoke vibe to it. Diana Ross is better than this. She...

    I agree that they have a similar style, but I wouldn't say they sound anything alike.

    Well yeah, she could have sung them. I just don't think they fit her.

    I don't think that's true. The only uptempo songs she sang lead on were "Come and Get These Memories", "Davy Crockett", "He's My Man", "Early Morning Love", "This Is Why I Believe". Am I missing...

    This is what I'm talking about! This was where Mary needed to be, music wise. She sounds so great on that first song. Aside from the Supremes, Mary missed her calling. I am now convinced that jazz,...

    I love the recording as is, even though I think it was a bad choice for a single. However, the live renditions have been even more fantastic, and this one doesn't disappoint.

    This actually could've been a hit for Mary. Very contemporary. I still don't believe that it really shows off her true vocal skills, but it really does have all the right elements. It really...

    Joan has passed on, so I won't be as brutal as I may have otherwise been. The bodyshaming of Diana was ridiculous. But at least she went after another grown woman unlike when she went after the cast...

    Most of your picks are good ones. I don't think she would have fit Color Purple at all.
    Had she been able to do the Baker story, I think it would've been a highlight of her career. The Bodyguard...

    Not that I'm aware of. I believe in the book she is quoted as saying that Diana and Mary thought the song was pretty good but Gordy thumbs it down. One could make the argument that he was in a better...

    Great speech, but who the hell were those idiots screaming like crazy? This was not that kind of moment. Just another reminder (as if I needed one) about why I avoid award shows like the plague.

    The tracks for the commercials would've made great songs. Especially the one from 67/68.

    This was exasperating. I didn't even watch the whole thing. The other video where she does this song, she's alright on it, but the band is kicking butt, which may have helped Mary take it up a notch,...

    The article was mostly regurgitated information, but I wouldn't necessarily call them myths. Pretty much everything in the article came from all the people involved. For us die hards there is nothing...

    During "Heartaches" their mics needed to be turned up. The music drowns them all out. However, it's still clear just how talented they all are. Too bad this version of "I Can't Help Myself" isn't the...

    Me too. She really should have pursued some of this after Dreamgirl. That book created a lot of buzz for her. She should have jumped on it.

    I know I've said it before, but this is really how I feel: of the original Supremes, Mary was the one least likely to take risks. She almost always went for the easy road and never the risky one that...

    Of course things would've had to change in order for Jean to stay. That's a given.

    As far as everyone going disco, did the Emotions go disco? The Pointer Sisters didn't either. I think the...

    JW was a severe flop, as were "Miss the Man" and "Weather". But they were not insurmountable flops. With the right producer involved, the right song, they would've been back on track again. Mary...
